    We have a Coby TF-TV1703 17in LCD TV and lost the remote some time ago. Somehow over the last few days the tv suddenly became locked ( blue screen with the word LOCK in the center). pretty much all we've managed to do at this point is turn the tv on and off with none of the other buttons seeming to do anything. any help would be most welcome.

How to Unlock Your Apex TV When Screen is Locked


If you find that your Apex TV is showing a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left then the Screen Lock otherwise known as Child Lock or Parental Control has been accidentally activated and your TV will not respond to commands from the remote control.

To resolve this and reactivate the TV simply press the (function or F) button and hold down the mute button on the remote at the same time for around 10 seconds. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired.

If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or to reset any preset rating levels.

This extract is taken from an Apex Manual specific to the child lock function;

The Childlock function is designed to prevent chiIdren from watching TV. To activate: HoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button until the symboI “ ” appears on the screen. The TV will enter the Childlock mode.
Except for the “ ” symbol the screen becomes blue or black . To unlock the TV hoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button again.

Please Note:
The Childlock can be set or cancelIed only by the remote controI. After setting Childlock, secure the remote control in a safe place.

If this Tip has helped please do take time to indicate this by using the rating buttons on the page below.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

Alba hd tv, no remote and the child lock is on just need to bypass it model no lcd3288ohdf


Okay - this is a secret child lock that Alba puts onto their tvs - not the child lock accessible via the menu which is 0000 as default. Basically there is a childlock built into the handset. Basically if you hold the menu exit button for more than 10 seconds the handset locks - all that happens then is when you press buttons you will see the blue panel flash on the tv but nothing works. This lock happens when the remote falls down the side of the settee or your child gets their hands on it!!! To unlock, find the menu button on the right hand side of the TV panel and hold it for 15 seconds and the menu screen will pop up - Really important you hold for 15 seconds before releasing. Then simply press the menu exit button on the remote and 'hey presto' - you have control of your TV again! Kind Regards, BIG BAD JON !!!

Got a small bush lcd tele i turn it on i get a blue screen with the word lock on


Try this
Try this...Press standby button on the remote to switch on the TV. Now press Vol- button on the front of TV while pressing the "7" button on the remote. If the lock has been successfully removed you should see a "OK" message appear on the screen.
If that doesn't work, try...
On the front of the TV...Push the volume + and -, OR, channel + and - at the same time and hold for a couple seconds, this should let you access the osd. If you can get to your menu through the buttons on the panel...immediiately go to the child lock and disable it.

When i turn on the tv its just a blue screen


turn it to channel 3 then flip through the stations. if you dont have your cable hooked up to the tv hook it up and it should work fine.
or

Child lock
- Parental control
- V-Chip

Often those lock require a password that is by default "0000"

From a research i did, it seem it might be cleared by holding the diplay button on the remote for 10-15 seconds.
please specify your tv model number and are you getting a red lock symbol for further queries

AKAI LCT3285TA seems to be stuck in "Standby"


Greetings,

We own a small TV repair shop in Ohio and have ran into similar problems with this TV.

To fix this problem we replaced 3 caps near and in the powersuppy of the TV.

This TV is very sensitive to electrical problems ( more then most if that's possible) so check the caps near the PSU.

Over all this TV is a fairly decent product.

Blue Vertical Line- Akai PDP4298ED


I have an Akai PDP4273M that developed the same problem. Checking around some of the av forums, I found a couple of threads that indicated it could be dust or bad contact around the ribbon cable connections on the video control board. I removed the back, loosened the ribbon cables on the board and used my small compressor with an air gun to blow out the dust all around the board and the ribbon connectors. Reconnected everything, turned on tv and stripe did not come back. Problem fixed! Nice and cheap solution.
